Certificates of Deposit

Invest on your terms

Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are a safe way to save money while earning a high rate of return on your investment. Unlike savings accounts, CDs have a specific, fixed term (from six months up to five years). They benefit from fixed interest rates, which vary depending upon the term.*

In order to avoid an early withdrawal penalty and to receive full interest, a CD must be held until maturity.** The Blue Grass Valley Bank uses the daily balance method to calculate the interest on our CD accounts, applying a daily periodic rate to the principal in the account each day.

* All CDs automatically renew; you will have ten (10) calendar days after the maturity date to withdraw funds without a penalty.

** The annual percentage yield assumes interest will remain on deposit until maturity; any withdrawal will reduce earnings.
